How about some accountability starting with firing of Frost. Failure at this level is unacceptable.

Maybe when high school students are caught bullying, this should go into their school records so when they apply to colleges this will show up....maybe then parents would begin to really show some interest and kids will think twice about what they are doing? Not all bullies are scumbags, many of them are top athletes, smart kids and come from well-to-do families and they think they are immune to penalties because they are the elite crowd. Just a thought.

What does this post even have to do with a HS student committing suicide? Completely off topic.

No, it's not off topic. Many cases of student suicide happen because a student is being bullied to the point of feeling helpless. Unfortunately, sometimes suicide feels like their only option (Phoebe Prince example). Her bullies were schoolmates, as in most cases. Let's hold the children doing the bullying accountable with REAL consequences!!!

I think the fact that you people are discussing this online and pointing fingers with incorrect information is disgusting, and even if the information held true it is not for the public to know. No one will ever actually understand why she took her own life, but you people are only feeding the rumors that are continuing to hurt her family. Pray for her, pray for her family, do anything besides sit here and point fingers - you people are disgusting

Bullying has been going in High School forever.I remember my Dad (Class of 1942)told me how he took care of a bully when he was in HS. My daughter attended Ayer High School 2002-2006,I remember her talking about how it appeared that the school administration seemed to be unaware of the bullying that was going on. I remember when I was in High School a group of us kids that were bullied got together and took care of the bullies (after school and off school property). When the principle found out he called us into his office and basically said don't do it again and with a wink "good job". That is how it was back then. IF this student and/or her parents brought the bullying to the attention of school officials and the bullying continued there is a serious problem that needs to be addresed. This was an unfortunate tragedy.
